Hello, Kris.
I’ll tell you what systematic candidiasis really is, and you tell me if you really think there’s a chance you may have this.

First, a person would have to have the Candida overgrowth for a fairly long period of time and probably not have a clue as far as how to treat it before contracting S.C.

Systemic candidiasis can spread through the body in the bloodstream. Eventually, it targets the vital organs which include the brain and involves the central nervous system. Brain abscesses and infarctions can occur as well with systemic candidiasis.

Other results of S.C. are endocarditis which involve fever, heart murmurs, heart palpitations, enlarged spleen and even congestive heart failure. Other symptoms of this ‘deadly’ situation are nephritis such reduced urine output, bloody urine, and edema of the hands and feet, as well as inflammation of the kidneys.

And there’s no way that S.C. would spare the intestines; these symptom include almost continuous and severe abdominal pain, bloating, vomiting and diarrhea.
Additional symptoms include inflammation of the vitreous humor of the eye and septic shock.

In virtually all cases, a person who reaches this level is going to be admitted to a hospital early on in the illness. A report from the Merck Manuals Online Medical Library states, “All forms of disseminated candidiasis should be considered serious, progressive, and potentially fatal.”
